Peter Koshland, Pharm.D, is a graduate of the UCSF School of Pharmacy, where he is currently an Adjunct Professor of Clinical Pharmacy and a member of the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors. He is committed to the health and well-being of his patients through close collaboration with practitioners in the application of evidence-based medicine. In 2009, Peter opened Koshland Pharm: Custom Compounding Pharmacy, which became the first compounding pharmacy in San Francisco to be accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB). Koshland Pharm makes customized medications and specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, veterinary medications, and pain management.
The intention of this blog is to 1) to support discussions about holistic, integrative, evidence-based approaches to health and healing, 2) to raise awareness about compounded (or customized) medications as a treatment option when a standard treatment is not working, and 3) to provide useful, evidence-based information about bioidentical hormones from a pharmacist’s perspective.
Because each individual’s treatment plan for any condition needs to be worked out with her doctor and pharmacist, Peter cannot give specific treatment recommendations through this blog. If you are looking for a practitioner to work with in your area, you might ask a local compounding pharmacy for a referral. To find a compounding pharmacy in your area that has been accredited by the the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB), go to PCAB’s website. If you live in California, you can check out Koshland Pharm’s practitioner referral page.
